Types of Smart Materials

Smart materials technology enables us to adapt to environmental changes by activating its functions. Multifunctional materials, sort of smart materials, can be activated by electrical stimuli so as to produce its geometry change or property change. There are many multifunctional materials available by the advent of nanotechnology, ranging from carbon nanotubes, graphene, inorganic nanoparticles, conducting polymers, and so on. However, future multifunctional smart materials should be harmonized with our living environment. Thus, it is natural to develop smart materials that can be renewable in the nature. Biopolymers are renewable materials that harmonize with environment.
